antennae

This is an excellent photo, and if you open it up to the full size, and then perhaps zoom in on the antennae even more, you can see that the flagellum (the last 'bit') of the antennae has only two sections, rather than three in some other woodlice species, including Oniscus. The small bumps on the main body are also characteristic of Porcellio (Oniscus is a bit smoother).
